Army prepares new set of network standards

Monday - 10/31/2011, 12:57pm EDT

The Army is preparing to publish a new set of standards that will dictate what technology is allowed to operate on its network. Officials say the integrated network baseline will let the service do a better job of keeping up with the technology cycle by adopting, common, open standards, without dictating precisely what technologies they'll allow. The Army also plans to require any vendors who want to participate in its huge Network Integration Evaluation to comply with the baseline.
